Jean Luc Godard once said “Film is truth, 24 frames per second.” Now, I don’t know what that means, but I do know it’s wrong. Film cannot be truth, because it is made of film, and truth is made of emotions or something. I also don’t know who Jean Luc Godard is, or what 24 frames have to do with it, as frames are usually found in Asda, for pictures and photos to sit in.
Although, actually, films are made of pictures, aren’t they? So maybe that’s what he meant, in which case, he’s very clever, even if he’s from somewhere that isn’t where I’m from.
So, what, in fact, is a film?
Well, it’s a thing you go to see when it’s too early to see it on tv. It even comes out before the dvd. And it costs three times as much as watching it for free, which is really stupid. Unless it has nudity in it.
But not every film does.
Neither did “Spaceballs” and that has ‘balls’ in the title.

My thoughts on…
The Last Jedi
The Last Jedi is about a girl on an island, a bit like Castaway. There’s also a robot thing that looks like a volleyball, which is also a bit like Castaway.
Space things happen for ages and the film feels like the middle part of a bigger story, except it can’t be, because it has ‘last’ in the title and I didn’t see the First Jedi anyway.
I missed about 20 minutes in the middle because I really needed a pee and then the film gave up and ended without ending.
Also like Castaway.
3 out of 5.
